Here in the Upper Valley (of the Connecticut River), West Lebanon NH is called "West Leb," although Lebanon itself is never called "Leb." Incidentally, the local pron of Lebanon (and West Lebanon) is not like that of the country; instead, the final syllable is unstressed.

FYI, I'm a new subscriber whose interest is half way between business and pleasure. I'm a freelance lexicographer. 

Best,
Jennifer
